>> Dems continue to block gay nominee

It is simply unconscionable that seasoned diplomat Ric Grenell hasnít been brought up for a vote in the US Senate to confirm him as our countryís ambassador to Germany. The votes are there to confirm Grenell and install him as the highest-ranking openly gay official in the Trump administration.

Call US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today and tell him you want a vote on Grenell's nomination: (202) 224-2541.
